"A" symetrical

Dave not sure what you mean there hun...? But i don't think mine looks anything like the picture, i gave her a make over new hairstyle and all lol!

Thank you Tell for the nice email, i have only had photoshop for about 6 months, i had the program on the pc but only used it to do silly make-overs nothing at all like the retouch they do here on this site, mine was just made up, i only learnt last night that photoshop have action files, just as they do on psp.v8 & v.9.

Tell...I am in the dark with this too, i am just pressing the buttons and hoping things work out, i guess being female might have an advantage where make up and hair styles come into it.

practicing my make up skills in photoshop only.

Thats a good tip Christine. As l continue to learn, i shall take out an old project and have another go at it... Im not an Artist but maybe l could learn to pretend l am.... Legacy, l dont know if being female would lend you those artistic skills or not. But you have them and i want them too. lve noticed people covert most what they do not have...Yet people who can pick up a brush and automatically paint, always under estimate their talent. Thank you both for generously sharing your skill and time... Tell.

I took a whack on a small chunk.
Tore it apart into Hue, Sat, and Lum.
Then got busy fixing a little at a time on the different parts.

I don't mind hair and I don't mind skin.
But I don't like blending the two together.
Ugh.

edit:
Tell, would you mind if I shared the two graphics that I built with others?

Hi everybody,

Dave, great start!!! You have an incredible eye for symmetry .... !!!!

Legacy, very good! A bit too blurred in my opinion... and the 'copy, paste, flip' technique can be very tricky!!! One of the most common effect is that the person in the picture seems to squint....

Christine, great .... but 'squinting' a bit ....

It took me more than 3 hours to fix this picture....

I run the polaroid Dust&Scratches Filter to eliminate some of the white dots.
I used the copy and paste technique to reconstruct the missing parts.
I used the Heal Brush first set to Replace then to Normal to further correct and blend in the pasted parts.
Filter>Noise>Dust&Scratches to eliminate the stronger noise.
Neat Image to smoothen out the rest of the noise.
Curves to Balance Tone and Contrast.
Empty Layers set to Lighten, Darken, Multiply and Overlay to selectively fade, darken, enhance different parts of the picture.
USM to enhance contrast.

Flora, just when I thought I was Potty trained, you come up with something like this! Oh well, back to the diapers. Just an awesome job!

I was trying to keep the restoration close to the original. Like others I used a Polaroid Dust & Scratches Filter, and then followed it with a Filter/Noise Dust & Scratches. Then came extensive cloning repair of the good areas of the face that would be copied to the bad areas (right eye, ear, forehead, hair) . Once these areas were cleaned up they were copied to new layers, transformed into shape, and blended in by creating and then painting into a layer mask.

For the background I created a new layer and ran another Polaroid Dust & Scratches Filter, and then used a Guassian blur to blend the background while masking out the Girl. I followed that up with painting on the background for those areas still not blended in.

Lightened the girl's dress by selecting it onto a separate layer and setting the blending mode to screen. Lastly ran an Unsharp Mask with "Hide All" layer mask and selectively painted in sharpness on her face.
